Is there anything better than looking out over a mature garden that has matured over time. The beauty and elegance that comes with established plants and flowers along with borders, smart designs and rockeries all help to create a place of tranquillity and tradition. Mature gardens can take time to maintain but the rewards are there for all to see but sometimes, it is possible for things to go wrong and that can cause problems for the garden.

It is common for the plants and flowers to bloom and grow really well but the lawn can be a completely different story. This is because the conditions for a lawn have to be right, otherwise it could grow patchy or even die and that will detract from the look of the whole garden.

If this has happened to you then you will understand the frustration. Of course, you can lay more seed, feed the lawn, kill any weeds and spend time doing all you can to revive it when in reality, it is wasted time because you know it will happen again. If this is the case then there is no point in becoming disheartened because you do have a choice and it is a choice that will most definitely make a huge difference for the better.

That choice is artificial grass for a mature garden.
